The Wisconsin Rehabilitation Council (WRC) and the Department of Workforce Development (DWD) are holding a series of special hearings around the state on Wednesday, May 21, from 3:00 to 4:30 p.m.
These hearings are designed to obtain comments from the public about how to improve employment for people in Wisconsin with disabilities. These comments will help WRC and DWD set the needs and priorities for services that lead to employment for individuals with disabilities.
The 11 hearing locations are listed at http://dwd.wisconsin.gov/dvr/hearings_notice_0514.htm .
If you're not able to attend one of the hearings, you can submit comments via email, fax or phone through May 21, 2014. The same website link above contains details about how to do this.
WRC is composed of citizens appointed by the Governor who consult with and advise the State of Wisconsin regarding vocational rehabilitation services. DWD is the state agency responsible for Wisconsin’s vocational rehabilitation program. DWD administers this program through its Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR).
